Nordische Liedformen treffen auf Folk, Jazz und Rock.
A rakish-looking bunch enter the stage. The Norwegian Magne Håvard Brekke studied acting in East Berlin, worked at the Volksbühne with Castorf and Marthaler, and now he has brought his band along.
Ljodahått sets both old and contemporary Norwegian poems to music, ranging from Edda and Henrik Ibsen to Tarjei Vesaas and Olav H. Hauge – in a mixture of different musical styles that is as original as it is idiosyncratic, presented in pleasant-sounding broken German.
